SIX TIMES THE LEGAL LIMIT

A woman will face court after allegedly being caught driving more than six times over the legal limit in the state’s Hunter region yesterday.

About 8.30pm (Saturday 24 July 2021) police were patrolling Nelson Bay Road at Williamtown after receiving information from the public about the manner of driving of a black Audi.

Police stopped the vehicle after they allegedly witnessed the car swerve and hit the gutter.

Officers from Port Stephens-Hunter Police District spoke to the driver, a 31-year-old woman.

She underwent a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.

The woman was arrested and taken to Raymond Terrace Police Station, where she underwent a breath analysis and allegedly returned a reading of 0.337, more than six and a half times the legal limit.

She was issued a Future Court Attendance Notice (FCAN) for drive with high-range PCA.

The woman is due to appear at Raymond Terrace Local Court on Monday 6 September 2021.

The woman’s licence was also suspended.
